Beauty Talk: My June Ipsy8:09:00 PM
It's been a couple months since I've shared what I received in my ipsy bag! If you're unfamiliar, ipsy is a beauty subscription service. It's like sending yourself a present every month (except less sad and more fun). The excitement of opening it up and getting to play with new beauty/skincare makes the ten bucks totally worth it. I'm always into seeing what other people have gotten in their bags and how it compares to my own.
When I cracked open Seraphine Botanicals' Happy Hibiscus Blush, I was expecting a vibrant pink color. Instead I found a mellow mauve. I must admit: I judged it too soon. It seemed unassuming! I knew I wouldn't be able to tell for sure until I wore it, but I wasn't super eager to try it. Once I did, though, I was totally blown away by how much I loved the look of it on my face. This was the dark horse of this month's bag for me.

I was, however, very excited to get another brush. This is the third time (I think) that I've gotten a brush in an ipsy bag and they've all been good quality. This Royal and Langnickel Crease/Smudge Brush is cute! It's teal. It's double ended. I brought it with me to get ready for a wedding recently and it came in super handy. I love getting brushes because they last forever and automatically increase the value of the bag.
Finally, I got two sheet masks, which were the things I was probably most excited about. I love masks, but as a chronically lazy person, sheet masks are my favorite because you don't have to wash them off. These BioRepublic Skin Care Fiber Masks came in two flavors - Cucumber Breeze, which smells like what I imagine the spa from that one episode of Gilmore Girls to smell like, and Pomegranate Crush, which I haven't tried yet.
It was super soothing and I felt like I could tell a difference in my skin afterwards - like it had actually soaked up the product instead of just sitting on my face. Also, it had the right amount of folds/cuts in the mask to help it fit right, which I find can sometimes be an issue with sheet masks. These particular ones are biodegradable, which is good since I probably killed a tree to soak my face in cucumber goo. Anyway...this bag was pretty great.
